Early years

Barbara Joan Streisand was born in Williamsburg, Brooklyn to a Jewish family. Her father, Emanuel Streisand, a grammar school teacher who emigrated from Vienna, Austria, died when she was 15 months old; she had a turbulent relationship with her stepfather, Louis Kind. She has a half-sister from her mother's second marriage, Roslyn Kind, who was also a performer.[2] Williamsburg is a neighborhood in the New York City borough of Brooklyn, bordering Greenpoint, Bed-Stuy, and Bushwick. ...

Her mother, Diana, a school secretary,[2] did not encourage her daughter to pursue a show business career, opining that Streisand was not attractive enough, and encouraged her to learn to type. Streisand attended Erasmus Hall High School,[3] where she graduated fourth in her class in 1959, and where she sang in the school choir with Neil Diamond. She was also friendly there with future World Chess Champion Bobby Fischer. She never attended college.

Early singing, theater, and television career

After a music competition, Streisand became a nightclub singer while in her teens. She originally wanted to be an actress and appeared in a number of Off-Off-Broadway productions, including one with then-aspiring actress Joan Rivers, but when her boyfriend Barry Dennen helped her create a club act — first performed in a gay bar in Manhattan's Greenwich Village in 1960; she achieved success as a singer. In 1961 Streisand appeared at the Town and Country nightclub in Winnipeg, MB, but her appearance was cut short; audiences did not understand her revolutionary singing style.[4] It was at this time that she shortened her first name to Barbra to make it more distinctive.[citation needed] Laser lights illuminate the dance floor at a Gatecrasher dance music event in Sheffield, England A nightclub (or night club or club) is a drinking, dancing, and entertainment venue which does its primary business after dark. ...

A kinescope exists of Streisand's first television appearance, which was on The Tonight Show in 1961 during the era when Jack Paar hosted it. Orson Bean substituted for Paar, who was absent that night. Phyllis Diller can be seen as another guest. The kinescope, which has circulated on Youtube, exists because in 1961 Streisand's older brother paid NBC for it so she could use the 16 millimeter film to promote her career. The handful of television appearances Streisand made shortly after sitting next to Bean, however, were mostly destroyed. She became a semi-regular on a talk/variety series hosted by Mike Wallace and Joyce Davidson, who recently had moved to the United States after a stint as an interviewer on Canadian television. An audio segment from one episode (or possibly combined from two or more episodes) is part of Streisand's compilation CD Just for the Record, which went platinum in 1991. This audio originated from an early fan of the singer who captured it with a reel-to-reel tape recorder. Kinescope (IPA: ) originally referred to the cathode ray tube used in television monitors. ...

Westinghouse Broadcasting, which aired the series (titled P.M. East P.M. West) exclusively in a select few cities (Boston, New York, Baltimore, Washington, DC, Cleveland, Chicago and San Francisco), wiped all the videotapes, which means that no moving image exists of Streisand on the show. (Stills from a photographer exist.) In 1991, Mike Wallace had to grant permission for the audio segment to be included on Just for the Record (despite the fact that an ordinary person outside the television business had saved it from oblivion), and it was for this reason that Streisand allowed Wallace to grill her on 60 Minutes that year. The singer said on 60 Minutes that thirty years earlier Wallace had been "mean" to her on the airwaves. Wallace countered that she had been "self-absorbed." Their 1991 interview included the audio of Streisand saying thirty years earlier, "I don't mind if you're provocative as long as you're not provoking me." The Westinghouse Broadcasting Company, also known as Group W, was a division of Westinghouse Electric Corporation. ... This article is about the CBS news magazine. ...


In 1962, after several appearances on P.M. East P.M. West, Streisand first appeared on Broadway, in the small but star-making role of Miss Marmelstein in the musical I Can Get It for You Wholesale. She also signed her first recording contract that year with Columbia Records.[citation needed] She appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show in 1962, and this brought Streisand to the attention of fellow guest Liberace, who featured her in his acts in Las Vegas.[citation needed] For other uses of Broadway, see Broadway. ...

On Monday, September 9, 1963, Streisand appeared as the opening act for piano virtuoso Liberace at Harrah's Lake Tahoe South Shore Room. She was touted as "the nation's newest singing sensation . . . who comes to Tahoe from a record-smashing engagement at Hollywood's Cocoanut Grove." In July, Streisand had first performed with Liberace at the Riviera Hotel in Las Vegas.[citation needed] Wladziu Valentino Liberace (May 16, 1919 – February 4, 1987), better known by only his last name Liberace (pronounced [ˌlɪbəˈrɑːtʃi]), was an American entertainer. ...


Her first album, The Barbra Streisand Album, won two Grammy Awards in 1963. Her recording success continued, and at one time Streisand's first three albums appeared simultaneously on Billboard's pop albums Top Ten - an unusual feat considering it was at a time when rock and roll and The Beatles dominated the charts.[citation needed] The Barbra Streisand Album is the title of Streisands debut solo studio album. ...

Streisand returned to Broadway in 1964 with an acclaimed performance as entertainer Fanny Brice in Funny Girl at the Winter Garden Theatre. The show introduced two of Streisand's signature songs, "People" and "Don't Rain on My Parade." In 1966, she repeated her success with the musical in London's West End at the Prince of Wales Theatre.

Singing career

Streisand has recorded more than 60 albums, almost all with the Columbia Records label. Streisand has stamped nearly every song she has sung with her unique style of interpretation. Her early works in the 1960s (her debut, The Second Barbra Streisand Album, The Third Album, My Name Is Barbra, etc.) are considered classic renditions of theater and cabaret standards, including her version of "Happy Days Are Here Again". She performed this in a duet on The Judy Garland Show. Garland referred to her as one of the last great belters. Beginning with My Name Is Barbra, her early albums were often medley-filled keepsakes of her television specials. Columbia Records is the oldest brand name in recorded sound, dating back to 1888, and was the first record company to produce pre-recorded records as opposed to blank cylinders. ...


Starting in 1969, Streisand began attempting more contemporary material, but like many "talented" singers of the day, she found herself out of her element with rock. But her vocal talents prevailed, and she gained newfound success with the pop and ballad-oriented Richard Perry-produced album Stoney End in 1971. The title track, written by Laura Nyro, was a major hit for Streisand. This article is about the genre. ...

During the 1970s, she was also highly prominent in the pop charts, with Top 10 recordings such as The Way We Were (US No. 1), Evergreen (US No. 1), No More Tears (Enough Is Enough) (with Donna Summer) (US No. 1), You Don't Bring Me Flowers (with Neil Diamond) (US No. 1) and The Main Event (US No. 3), some of which came from soundtrack recordings of her films. Donna Summer (born LaDonna Adrian Gaines on December 31, 1948) is an American singer, songwriter, and artist, best known for a string of dance hits in the late 1970s that earned her the title Queen Of Disco and as one of the few disco-based artists to have longevity on...

As the 1970s ended, Streisand was named the most successful female singer in the U.S. - only Elvis Presley and The Beatles had sold more albums.[5] In 1982, New York Times music critic Stephen Holden wrote that Streisand was "the most influential mainstream American pop singer since Frank Sinatra."[citation needed]. In 1980, she released her best-selling effort to date, the Barry Gibb-produced Guilty.

After years of largely ignoring Broadway and traditional pop music in favor of more contemporary material, Streisand finally returned to her musical-theater roots with 1985's The Broadway Album, which was unexpectedly successful, holding the coveted #1 Billboard position for three straight weeks, and being certified quadruple Platinum. The album featured tunes by Rodgers & Hammerstein, George Gershwin, Jerome Kern and, most notably, Stephen Sondheim - who was even persuaded to rework some of his songs especially for this recording. The Broadway Album was met with nearly universal acclaim including a nomination for Album of the Year and, ultimately, handed Streisand her eighth Grammy as Best Female Vocalist. After releasing the live album One Voice in 1986, Streisand was set to take another musical journey along the Great White Way in 1988. She recorded several cuts for the album under the direction of Rupert Holmes, including On My Own (from Les Misérables), a medley of How Are Things in Glocca Morra? and Heather on the Hill (from Finian's Rainbow and Brigadoon, respectively), All I Ask of You (from Phantom of the Opera), Warm All Over (from The Most Happy Fella) and an unusual solo version of Make Our Garden Grow (from Candide). Streisand was not happy with the direction of the project and it was ultimately scrapped. Only Warm All Over and a reworked, Lite FM-friendly version of All I Ask of You were ever released - the latter appearing on Streisand's 1988 effort, Till I Loved You.

The beginning of the 1990s found Streisand focusing on her directorial efforts and largely inactive in the recording studio. In 1991, a four-disc box set, Just for the Record, was released. A compilation spanning Streisand's entire career to date, it featured over 70 tracks of live performances, greatest hits, rarities and previously-unreleased material.


The following year, Streisand's concert fundraising events helped propel former President Bill Clinton into the spotlight and into office.[6] Streisand later introduced Clinton at his inauguration in 1993. Streisand's music career, however, was largely on hold. A 1992 appearance at an APLA benefit as well as the aforementioned inaugural performance hinted that Streisand was becoming more receptive to the idea of a live performances. A tour was suggested, though Streisand would not immediately commit to it, citing her her well-known stage fright as well as security concerns. During this time, Streisand finally returned to the recording studio and released Back to Broadway in June of 1993. The album was not as universally-lauded as its predecessor, but it did debut at #1 on the pop charts (a rare feat for an artist of Streisand's age, especially given that it relegated Janet Jackson's Janet to the #2 spot). One of the album's highlights was a medley of I Have A Love / One Hand, One Heart a duet with the legendary Johnny Mathis, whom Streisand said is one of her favorite singers.

In September 1993, Streisand made global news, announcing her first public concert appearances in 27 years. What began as a two-night New Year's event at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas eventually led to a multi-city tour in the Summer of 1994. Tickets to the tour were sold out in under one hour. Streisand also appeared on the covers of major magazines in anticipation of what Time magazine named "The Music Event of the Century". The tour was one of the biggest all-media merchandise parlays in history. Ticket prices ranged from US$50 to US$1,500 - making Streisand the highest paid concert performer in history. Barbra Streisand: The Concert went on to be the top grossing concert of the year, earned five Emmy Awards and the Peabody Award, and the taped broadcast on HBO is, to date, the highest rated concert special in HBO's 30 year history. (Clockwise from upper left) Time magazine covers from May 7, 1945; July 25, 1969; December 31, 1999; September 14, 2001; and April 21, 2003. ... USD redirects here. ... An Emmy Award. ...

Following the tour's conclusion, Streisand once again kept a low profile musically, instead focusing her efforts on her acting and directing duties as well as her burgeoning romance with actor James Brolin. In 1997, Streisand finally returned to the recording studio, releasing Higher Ground - a collection of songs of a loosely-inspirational nature which also featured a duet with Celine Dion. The album received generally favorable reviews and, remarkably, once again debuted at #1 on the pop charts.

Following her marriage to Brolin in 1998, Streisand recorded an album of love songs entitled A Love Like Ours the following year. Reviews were mixed, with many critics carping about the somewhat syrupy sentiments and overly-lush arrangements; however, it did produce a modest hit for Streisand in the country-tinged If You Ever Leave Me, a duet with Vince Gill. Vince Gill (born Vincent Grant Gill[1], April 12, 1957) is an American neotraditional country musician, songwriter, and singer. ...


On New Year's Eve 1999, Streisand returned to the concert stage, giving the highest grossing single concert in Las Vegas history to date. At the end of the millennium, she was the number one female singer in the U.S., with at least two #1 albums in each decade since she began performing. A 2-disc live album of the concert entitled Timeless: Live in Concert was released in 2000. For further information, see Las Vegas metropolitan area and Las Vegas Strip. ...


Streisand's most recent albums have been Christmas Memories (2001), a somewhat somber collection of holiday songs (which felt entirely - albeit unintentionally - appropriate in the early post-9/11 days), and The Movie Album (2003), featuring famous movie themes and backed by a large symphony orchestra.

In advance of four concerts (two each in Los Angeles and New York) in September 2000, Streisand announced she was retiring from future paying public concerts. Her performance of the song People was broadcast on the Internet via America Online.


In 2006, Streisand came out of retirement and announced her intent to tour again, in an effort to raise money and awareness for multiple issues. After four days of rehearsal at the Sovereign Bank Arena in Trenton, New Jersey, the tour began on October 4 at the Wachovia Center in Philadelphia and concluded at Staples Center in Los Angeles on November 20, 2006. Special guests Il Divo were interwoven throughout the show. On stage closing night, Streisand hinted that six more concerts may follow on foreign soil. The show was known as Streisand: The Tour.

On October 9, 2006, Streisand performed a concert at the Madison Square Garden, featuring a skit that made fun of President George W. Bush. When one heckler continued to yell repeated taunts during and long after the skit had ended, Streisand responded by shouting "Shut the fuck up!" She later apologized, but added that "The artist's role is to disturb."[7] Ultimately, Streisand endured negative reaction to the sketch at only two out of her twenty concert dates.

Streisand's 20-concert tour set record box office numbers. At the age of 64, well past the prime of most performers, she grossed US$92,457,062 and set house gross records in 14 of the 16 arenas played on the tour. She set the third place record for her October 9, 2006 show at Madison Square Garden, the first and second place records of which are held by her two shows in September 2000. She set the second place record at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, with her December 31, 1999 show being the house record and the highest grossing concert of all time.
